plots. so that's why i've been urging the obama administration to hold him as potential enemy combatant to continue the dialogue apart from the criminal case. >> reporter: on the other hand this has potential to become a political hot potato. the service of the democratic senator carl levin says the suspect should not be held as enemy combatant and says he opportunity see the evidence that tsarnaev is part of organized group and not a legal basis for him to be held as enemy combatant. back to you. >> alisyn: thank you. >> clayton: do the boston bombing suspect expose flaw of the immigration system? chuck grassley brought this up on capitol hill. >> we don't know the immigration status of people who terrorized communities in massachusetts, when we find out, it will help shed light on the weaknesses of our system. >> clayton: that raises a largeer question. could it reshape the immigration reform? ask texas congressman louie goehmert joining us from philadelphia. nice to see you. >> thank you. great to be with you. >> clayton: let's dive deeply in the question. we look at the individuals
may be able to do so. when the obama administration going to that it was use the public safety exception, might be able you to do that but recognize that it .s limited and narrow so, now i think that might have been invoked. we don't know. that is one thing we don't actually currently know now. how this has proceeded. what is important here is that counsel and has has gone before a judge. look to the system to ork, which means we expect prosecutors to proceed fairly defensee their case and lawyers to zealously perform their duty. facts look to see what they find and architects they make. host: how different is the safety exception that can be invoked in the first phase after detention of a suspect, that different from looking at military or enemy status?t guest: the main difference the ublic safety exception is very narrow and limited in time. how not exactly clear much. i'm not sure if it was used by the obama administration, but if there was not enough time for a thorough interrogation of want from ou would somebody involved in an act of terrorism to know everything you nee
in america's newsroom. martha: several republican lawmakers are now questioning the obama administration's decision not to treat the boston bombing suspect dzhokhar tsarnaev as an enemy combatant. he will face a civilian trial in criminal court. civilian complaint is revealing details from the carjacking to the shootout in police. listen to this from the documents released yesterday. the man point ad firearm at the victim, the person who was carjacked, did you hear about the boston explosion? and i did that. the man removed the magazine from his gun and showed the vipg tim it had a bullet in it and reinstated the magazine and stated, i am serious. new york city mayor, rudy giuliani helped lead the nation out of 9/11 terror attacks and we i will be remembered for that going forward and rely on you for your expertise how you break down these things. a lot of people bush for enemy combatant status. the white house doesn't want to go there. is that a wise decision on their part. >> i don't think so. martha: why? >> the white house is a in state of denial and has been that way since major has
. a policy decision the obama administration has made. he was a american citizen and naturalized last september and now a federal law, the national defense authorization act of 2012 that says american citizens cannot be tried in military commission. so it's not -- this debate is not a question about where he should be tried. the republicans who say he should be treated differently, their claim is that while they understand the civilian trial will go forward, they think he should be treated for now as an enemy combatant and questioned without any question about his rights, without any issue about whether information he gives would be used in his trial, and then turn back over to civilian authorities. but, clearly, the justice department will have none of that. that's not how it's going to go. >> he's in a boston hospital under heavy guard and serious condition including a gunshot wound to the throat but he is responding to some questions to a team the federal investigators in writing. any indication as to what he is saying or maybe perhaps just what they are trying to get out of him at
to the department of defense for the obama administration. jay, good to see you again, thank you very much for being with us. you have been involved in so many of these issues. we wanted to talk to you, about your take-away about enemy combatant. judicial decisions in a number of cases can you clarify how long can this exception from your wisdom last. is it the point the arrest. or the point of communication? >> well first of all, it's important to remember that any time dangerous criminal, suspect, is arrested for terrorist acts, our first impulse when that suspect is from a foreign land or is of a certain religion, should not be a reach for the military. the military is not the only answer here. and i warned about that in office, the possibility of over militarization of our common terrorism efforts, it's a whole government effort. second, the notion of designating the suspect as an enemy combatant, i'm not even sure is legal. in this situation. to be part of the enemy force in the congressionally authorized armed conflict from 2001, the suspect would need to be either part of al qaeda or an assoc
had stagnant growth frankly throughout most of the obama administration and the leadership in the last five years. we need do better. >> host: why is it okay to spent billions of year on corporate entitlement who don't pay taxes. we pay for our entitlements wall street does not. >> guest: it's not okay. , i mean, frankly, we need to bring it in and change our tax code in a way that lowers rates for everybody and eliminate the big corporation. i do recognize, i think the caller -- the e-mail is correct. folks have paid in to social security and medicare deserve to receive those benefits. the problem is something is not done, then the programs over time have the risk of going away. >> host: on twitter wouldn't social security and medicare be in a better shape if wages were higher? >> guest: wouldn't social security and medicare be in better shape if wages were higher? yeah. that's right. one of the challenges we face is how do you get the growing economy going forward and that is up with of our big debate for the summer. republicans believe that we need modify our tax code and reduce rat
and the best example of this is the obama's administration war on coal. what is the impact of this great abundant natural resource? in 2012, coal was responsible for 37% of electricity generated in the united states, more than any other source of electricity. given current consumption rates, the united states has more than 200 and 30 years left remaining -- in coal reserves and responsible for 670,000 u.s. jobs. my home state, kentucky, has plused energy for centuries and most importantly we have produced coal. and our coal industry that has been built by the hard work of my fellow citizens of kentucky powers america. kentucky was the third largest coal-producing state and coal mining was the greatest source of energy production in the commonwealth. in 2011, coal mines employed more than 19,000 individuals through the year and mining directly contributed to approximately $4 billion to the commonwealth's economy. what has the war on coal brought to our country and to kentucky? domestic coal decreased by 4.6% just last year. in 2012 u.s. coal consumption for electric power declined by 11.5
years. by and large, the bush administration and the obama administration should be applauded for the efforts. all the men and women who work throughout our law enforcement agencies, the fbi, cia, military, to try to keep us safe. but when these tragedies occur, we cannot help but be heartbroken and we need to see what more needs to be done. host: let's move on to the budget. the front page of the washington post has its headline -- where did you come down on a proposal from the president, the chained cpi, as well as higher medicare premiums and reduced benefits for wealthier seniors? guest: we have to start with the premise cannot keep spending money we don't have. we have a moral obligation to not rob the next generation of their opportunity to live the american dream. at the same time, we have seniors who have paid into this program, folks that are near retirement and those years away from retirement to have paid into social security and medicare with the understanding there will have the security of those programs being strong. actuaries of either party will tell you the n
disagree with the obama's administration decision to rule out enemy combatant suspect. >> reporter: labeling him as an enemy combatant would allow the government to question him without an attorney president and maybe get some of those answers. barbara starr, cnn, the pentagon. >> thanks, barbara. most of us can't even begin to imagine the incredibly tense moments that led up to the arrest of dzhokhar cztsarnaev. but that's what they are trained to do. the s.w.a.t team that took tsarnaev into custody describes the final moments to anderson cooper. let's listen. >> let's do it. let's do what we're trained to do. this is the suspect. we're trained to go in and apprehend him. you can see one hand is clear of any weapons each time he went the other way, his hand went down inside the boat out of our view. i know everybody here we've spoken about it. each time he did that, we had to assume he was reaching for either a weapon, a firearm or some explosive ignition device to kind of draw us in and take us out in a suicide type manner. he did that a couple of times as we're still approaching
not made in order. yesterday, the obama administration expressed ongoing concerns about this legislation, issuing a veto threat. i share the president's concern, despite positive changes that this bill falls short in several key ways. as written right now and hopefully there still may be some changes, cispa allows the military to directly collect personal information on american citizens, it fails to safeguard privacy of americans and grants sweeping immunity to companies for decisions made based on cyberinformation prohibiting consumers from holding companies accountable for reck less actions. i urge opposition. the chair: the gentlelady is recognized for 30 seconds. ms. schakowsky: i was going to conclude by saying i urge my colleagues to oppose this bill, we can and should do better and i'm hopeful that we still bill do -- will do better and i yield back the balance of my time. the chair: the gentlelady's time has expire. the gentleman from michigan is recognized. mr. ruppersberger: thank you, madam chair, i yield myself 30 seconds. i want to make very, very clear in the bill and i th
review board. clearly even john kerry is not confident in the obama administration's versions of the verns -- events. kerry promised the committee that he would clear the air, in his words, though he also repeatedly used the phrase that clears the air needs to be done so we can move on to far more important issues. and i am so grateful to secretary kerry for taking that position. we do need to get to the truth. dead d at benghazi, the americans cry out for truth. hose who were harmed and hurt, americans there deserve the truth. opefully we will get that. mr. speaker, with so much suffering and anguish right now in america, it is still the greatest nation in the history of the world. and may god guide the leadership in this country, that we don't drop the ball and fail on our watch. that we show ourselves to be worthy recipients of the gifts of liberty given to us by prior nerations, all coming as the founders noted as a gift from god. ith that i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back the balance of his time. the chair will entertain a motion to adjourn
